In the picture above one can see two wires in a harness chewed away completely and others partly-chewed. In this instance the owner got into his car, drove off and nearly collided with a gatepost because the brakes were much heavier than he expected – because the cables chewed-through were part of the braking system! This cost hundreds of pounds to put right.
In another instance, a freshly fitted set of expensive plug leads on a V12 were mostly chewed through, along with a number of hoses and other cables. The bill came to over a thousand pounds!
In the pictures above you’ll see where a mouse had made a nest by dragging pieces of insulation from the bonnet and bringing it to an area beside the distributor. The pest had also taken a good nibble out of various other items.2:15 pm
